Beautiful stone house in idyllic Scottish Borders

Additional Location Information
Surrounded by rolling hills and winding rivers, The Byres is truly a rural getaway.
Located in the Heart of the Ettrick Valley, 13 miles from Selkirk along the B7009. 1 hour 20 mins from Edinburgh, with plenty of Historic Houses, Castles and ruined Abbeys in the area as well as adventure playgrounds, shopping in pretty Borders Towns and just chilling out.
Outside the house there is a large secure garden area as well as 4 acres of land sloping down towards the River Ettrick with paths through the wild flower meadow, picnic benches and fabulous views.
Spend time messing about in the private stream or go for a walk up the hills and then come back for some alfresco dining. There are plenty of outdoor tables and chairs as well as a barbecue and even a trampoline to keep the kids happy.
Fishing, cycling, walking, and bird watching can all be based from the house, with boating, kayaking, horse riding and several golf courses within about 30 mins, as well as the excellent mountain biking centres of Glentress and Innerliethen. The nearby Buccleugh Estate offers some of the best fishing and shooting in Scotland. The area is also especially good for star gazing with clear dark skies.
Plenty of parking and disabled access to the house.
